Booking Conditions

Playing Groups

All visitors are asked to note that play on the Championship Links will be in 4 ball groups and any group booking less than 4 players should be aware that it is likely that they will be joined by other golfers to make the group up to 4 players.


Full payment of the Green Fee is required at the time of booking for all individual bookings.

Refund Policy

There will be no refunds of deposits or any other green fee payments. 
A number of golf travel insurance policies are available which include cover for cancelled green fees and the Club would encourage anyone making a booking at Royal County Down to consider taking out travel insurance. 

In the event of cancellation by the Club due to weather conditions or other circumstances, the prepaid amount will be refunded on request in full.


Caddies are self-employed and although we will do our best to meet requests for caddies, we cannot guarantee availability.

Bad Weather

When lightning or other dangerous conditions occurs, players will be asked to leave the links and take shelter.  Any visitors who fail to comply with such a request remain on the links at their own risk.

Tee Positions

The Tee Markers positions are reviewed each day by the Greenkeeping Staff, taking into consideration many factors including links maintenance and weather.

Speed of Play

The Course Marshal has the complete authority to ask players to move to easier tees in the event that the group’s position on the links is not maintained.

Dress Standards

Players are expected to wear an acceptable standard of dress. Please see Standard of Dress for Men or Standard of Dress for Ladies
